Polk paramedic arrested on child porn charges


Published:   |   Updated: October 4, 2013 at 03:15 PM

A Polk County paramedic is in jail after deputies say they found on his cellphone child pornography and video of him following young girls.

Polk County officials fired 44-year-old Gregg Craft after his arrest.

Craft had been arrested Sept. 21 after security officers at a Kissimmee Wal-Mart said they saw him expose and touch himself. Osceola County sheriff's detectives say they found on his phone more than 10 pictures of child pornography and video Craft took of himself following girls in the store.

Detectives say Craft apologized after he was confronted, according to the Ledger newspaper.

Craft was being held Friday at the Polk County Jail with bail set at $250,000 on child pornography and exposure charges.

It couldn't be determined early Friday if he has a lawyer.
